searching for info re: William B. Walling and his family. Owned several lumber mills in the Blackhawk and Center City areas in the late 1860's thru 1870's.

wife, Louisa (Clough) Walling, children, Bertie, Fred, Addie, May and Elmer.

Dau. Addie and May sent to live with Ellen G. White (founder of the 7th Day Adventist Church) in 1873 which resulted in the breakup of the Walling marriage in 1875.

Youngest son, Elmer was adopted by Louisa's 2nd husband, miner John C. Dunn. Elmer (Walling) Dunn was a miner, singer with the Center City Opera and a founding member of the Colorado National Guard.
Does this family sound familiar to anyone?
Any info is appreciated,
Tina Dunn
